- Protects the front barrel from accidental knocks and scraps
- Smooth surface & matte finish inside
- A lens hood shades the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality
A lens hood is a must for every photo enthusiast. A lens hood is primarily designed to avoid unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. The bayonet connection makes attaching the lens hood to your lens very simple. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.
This lens hood is designed to replace the manufacturer branded version; as per the Canon original you can only attach the lens hood OR the lens filter adapter to the camera. They cannot be attached at the same time.
